The scale is finally moving down again! I've lost 2.5 pounds in the last 2 weeks! Ya buddy! What I've done differently:
1. I male sure not to over eat. I don't have seconds very often. I pay attention to my tummy. If I feel a the least bit full I stop. I often say out loud, "I'm full. I don't need this." Then I put my fork back down. I feel like I'm getting a little more control, although I'm a work in progress, but are not we all?
2. I've been lifting heavier. I workout at home now, I canceled my gym membership a few months ago, and I hat 10 pounders and 25 pounders. I've started doing 25 pounds for things like deadlifts, rows, chest presses, among others. I'm using the work out program from "The new rules of lifting for women" by Lou schuler. I like the program. I've tried new things with it, like a plank on a swiss ball-I feel so cool that I can do that! :)
3. Increase protein intake. I've starting using protein powder. I use EAS spy protein powder, and I like it very much. I may or may not be slightly addicted to it... There's no telling. ;)
I can feel my body changing and I'm loving it!
